Greetings from the president of CNARC. I hope everyone is enjoying the spring season in spite of the cold wet weather and poor band conditions. I am looking forward to summer with enthusiasm and anticipation of much warmer days and planning warm weather projects and maybe a few camping trips. That reminds me in a couple months it will be time for the annual Victoria Springs Hamfest/Steak Fry.
The only difference is the new location of this year’s event. It will be held at Bader Park near Chapman, Nebraska just northeast of Grand Island. After 57 years of meeting at Victoria Springs and creating many memories and enjoying good times the membership elected to move to the new location.
Bader Park will accommodate more campers and will be more Ham friendly. I want to invite all amateur radio operators and family and prospective new hams and anyone curious to find out about the hobby to come to Bader Park the last full weekend in July. This year’s dates are July 27, 28. Many events have been planned. For more information please check the CNARC website for a full agenda. Enjoy your summer. Thank you.
